pc tweaking / boosting utilities

  crespo 02:55 05 Apr 2006

HI! This is Crespo calling. I'm interested in downloading software that will tweak or boost my laptop. I've had it for five months now and it's been suggested i might need utilities to improve it's performance. I have noticed it is a bit slow - i'm on dial-up. But there's a plethora of utilities on free cd's with computer mags - including this month's issue of PC Advisor. There's Win shampoo Optimizer, PC Turboboost, TweakU,Powertoys to name but a few. As a "newbie", I'm utterly confused as what tool to go for. Can someone out there recommend me one of the above or any other booster utilities? As always, any help will be v.v. appreciated. Cheers! C.
